Bologna Basilica di San PetronioThe Basilica di San Petronio is the largest church in the whole of Bologna and building work began more than 600 years ago.

Original plans off Bologna's Basilica di San Petronio had to be scaled down after the Vatican declared that the church must not be larger than St. Peter's in Rome, home of the pope.

This beautiful basilica remains the fifth largest of its kind in the whole world and houses many spectacular paintings, masterpieces, frescoes, sculptures and historic attractions. Bologna's Basilica di San Petronio church is named after the city's patron saint and contains many attractive chapels.
